Leon's recent post brought a thought to my mind ...

Is there a measurable difference between a specifically made lense for a super 8 projector (for instance, the KOWA), and a 16MM or 35MM?

That is, would one made for super 8, allow more light to the screen, or is there any real measurable difference?

OSI, you have to remember that you use only one lens! Not two! When you use two it takes more light! Like I say one lens more light. Two lens less light!
